Saturday, June 11 is National Rosé Day. Stock up early for the festivities at Madrona Farmers Market and get a taste of a Washington Rosé from new vendor Upsidedown Wine. Winemaker Seth Kitzke (of Kitzke Cellars) will be pouring samples this afternoon (Friday, June 10) from his 100 percent Nebbiolo Rosé grown in the Columbia Valley. Each Upsidedown vintage partners with a charitable cause and 20% of the proceeds go to it. Proceeds from Upsidedown’s 100% Nebbiolo Rosé go to support animal rescue organizations in Seattle and around the country.
Seth (pictured above) was born into winemaking and uses grapes he planted on his family’s vineyard when he was ten. Though he travels back to Richland, Washington often to help out and oversee the making of his wine, he and his wife have called Wallingford home for the last 6 years.
Upsidedown Wine is meant to be fresh, mellow, and easy to drink, so grab a bottle and celebrate the right way! The Nebbiolo is crisp with just the right balance of sweetness. Cheers! See you at market!
